Psalm 88:3 For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to Sheol.


The Psalmist speaks of such an enormity of external and internal pressures that he uses the phrase his soul is full of troubles.


My life is full of activities. I am busy. But in no way is my life full of troubles. Now some of the things that I spend my time doing cause me either emotional discomfort or on the worst day some type of trouble. But my soul is not full of trouble. I can have the tendency of being dramatic about all the things that are happening in and around my life.

My application is to recognize the different between drama and real trouble. When I recognize what the real trouble is I will trust in Jesus to be my shield, defender, and peace.


Forgive me for being dramatic. Let me be real about real trouble. Also let me let go of trouble I create for myself. Thank you that my soul is at peace with you.
